Breaking the Blood Brain Barrier: The Quest to Cure Neurodegeneration

Neurological degenerative illnesses like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS have proven difficult to treat because of one of the strongest security systems in the human body: The Blood Brain Barrier. This episode looks at how modern medicine might be able to finally break down that barrier for good. We speak with Jefferies’ Mike Yee, Denali Therapeutics’ Ryan Watts, and Dr. Rachita Sumbria of Chapman University.
